Archive’s 200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide 2016/17

The joy to be selected again by Archive for ‘200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide 2016/17!  I was planning on working as a lifeguard in Hawaii, but it got postponed by the jury of Archive.  Sending my sincere gratitude to all who have collaborated with me over the years to create beautiful work, and most importantly, shared a good time.

Maker’s 46 Campaign + BTS

We continued our series with Maker’s Mark for their iconic Maker’s 46 Bourbon Whiskey.  Since it is only made during the winter months, we’ve decided to shoot it on a frozen lake.  In the studio.  With real ice.  Well, maybe it’s easier to understand if you watch the video below…

OFFSET Drinks Photography Workshop with ADC All-Stars

The Art Directors Club of New York selected 24 aspiring creatives from 24 different cities around the globe, during their ADC Portfolio Nights.  Each Portfolio Night city selected one person as their Portfolio Night All-Star. Throughout the first week of August, the All-Stars traveled to New York, where they participated in the third installment of ADC Portfolio Night All-Stars Week, to work together on a real creative project for a global brand.

I had the pleasure of hosting this incredible group of young creatives at OFFSET for a Drinks Photography workshop and fun shenanigans afterwards.  Take a peek to meet the ADC All-Stars:

Casa Dragones Tequila

Craftsmanship.  Not a word usually used when drinking Tequila.  In this case however, craftsmanship was not only evident in this smooth Tequila, but also in the crystal clear ice made by Okamoto Custom Ice Studio.  “If you have such a quality spirit like Dragones, to dilute that with conventional ice is not ideal,” according to Okamoto. “Exceptional ice allows for minimal dilution and to bring out the purest, cleanest flavor when serving Casa Dragones Blanco on the rocks.” 

Working on a new campaign with an agency (Mouth NY) and a contributor so dedicated, is a real pleasure.  Since we prefer shooting with real ice and real ingredients, he turned out to be the perfect collaborator.  You can check out the incredible ice sculptures made by Okamoto studio here -> http://www.okamotostudionyc.com/

Ragu

Lovely multi day shoot with agency Weber Shandwick for all the new point of sale and in-store displays for Ragu Spaghetti & Pasta Sauces here in the United States.  Space28 was the perfect work environment with the most beautiful & consistent daylight any food photographer could hope for.  Grateful to my incredible team & crew who made it a wonderful and pleasant experience, shooting 25 recipes in three days and getting it all done in time with a smile on all our faces.  See our behind the scenes footage here:

A needle as thin as a hair

An injection pen for type 2 diabetes treatments, with a needle as thin as a hair.  Definitely an interesting challenge to light and to accomplish what was put forth by CDM:  ‘So thin, patients can’t feel it – photographed elegantly, with the incredibly thin needle gauge apparent but still visible to the naked eye.’  Prop Styling by Alex Niki.

New You Magazine – Edible Flowers & Cosmetics

As a photographer, there’s hardly anything more rewarding than to be hired and given total freedom by an art director.  The trust expressed in this gesture is always so invigorating.  Thanks Seung!  For our page opener and image series on ‘Edible Flowers’ for New You Magazine, I could count on absolutely beautiful, serendipitous food styling by Victoria Granof and for our story for ‘Beauty Now’, prop. stylist Thom Driver did an exceptional job.  I am looking forward to shooting with all of them again soon.
